SentryOne Launches CloudLifter™ Database Migration and Optimization Suite

Sponsored by Businesswire

announced the release of CloudLifter™, a product suite that
simplifies and de-risks migrating SQL Server databases to hosted cloud
services. SentryOne CloudLifter includes solutions for re-architecting
databases, validating data, and ensuring optimal data delivery before
and after the migration. These address many of the roadblocks companies
face when transitioning business-critical data systems to the cloud.

“Many enterprises feel like they’re flying blind when it comes to
migrating database workloads to the cloud. Primarily, they lack
visibility into their data,” said Douglas McDowell, SentryOne Chief
Strategy Officer. “CloudLifter tackles data-driven companies’ biggest
obstacles – giving them confidence to move to the cloud with the most
efficiency and the least cost.”

SentryOne CloudLifter product suite includes:

  • DBA xPress, which helps data teams understand schema and data
    differences as well as data dependencies as part of the database
    re-architecture process in preparation for migration
  • SentryOne Test, an automated test framework that helps companies test
    and validate data before and after the transition
  • DOC xPress, which helps data teams document databases and database
    dependencies, conduct metadata discovery, and track data origin
  • SQL Sentry Essentials gives DBAs baselining tools so they can optimize
    SQL Server pre- and post-migration

“This carefully curated product suite gives data teams the tools they
need to execute a methodical, successful cloud migration,” said Jason
Hall, SentryOne VP of Product. “Making sure databases get to the
cloud—with the data intact and no interruptions in data delivery—is
paramount. CloudLifter simplifies that process.”

SentryOne CloudLifter is available to direct customers and through the
SentryOne Global Partner Network. The suite is particularly beneficial
to managed service providers (MSPs), who will use these solutions to
accelerate cloud migrations of the data estates they manage for their

“Every business has a significant investment in their data. It’s the
lifeblood of the business, both operationally and strategically,” said
David Klee, Chief Architect and Founder of Heraflux Technologies, a
SentryOne partner. “Migrating databases to the cloud is a significant
project, and companies should be concerned about the state of their data
throughout the process. SentryOne CloudLifter, which pulls together
proven technologies from a trusted team of database experts, removes
some of that hesitation and paves the way for companies to enjoy the
convenience, increased simplicity, and improved manageability of
cloud-based databases.”

CloudLifter is available for $2,995, a nearly 20 percent discount for
customers compared with single product purchases. The suite includes two
licenses of SQL Sentry Essentials and one license each of DBA xPress,
DOC xPress Pro, and SentryOne Test. A complete description of SentryOne
